Show Us Your Polybar


#43

how did you set the polybar to transparent


#44

@InvisibleRasta On module colors ( polybar/master.conf ) You set the transparent polybar with :

background = #ab000000


#45

WIP with help from the forum

Hi guys,
Do you know if one can change the opacity of polybar? I see a transparent polybar but none that are semi-transparent?


#48

I’m playing with the values, for example #ff000000 has total opacity and #af000000 has another less opaque tone


#49

That polybar is beautiful! I also want mine to be slightly opaque. Did you do this with Compton?


#50

@fatboy as you can see, Negata answered the question already…


#51

@fatboy - adjust the colors in the master.conf first, then when you start compton, they polybar will be translucent.

A couple of posts in on this thread is a chart you can use as a guide to get the ooacity level-

OK, great! Will definitely check it out, thanks!

Nice Polybar shot again @andril


#55

Very nice!


#56

Man… you all are making me rethink poly instead of my current: i3blocks :wink:


#57

I used i3blocks again this morning but changed up my theme again and couldn’t be bothered changing it up so went back to polybar.


#58

I’m sure you’ve just about all seen my polybars, but anyway…


#59

Now how did you manage to get the unicode to show up? I must be doing something incorrect.


#60

I have FontAwesome included as a font in my bars. I believe most of my icons are being sourced from there or my nerd-fonts patched Iosevka. :slight_smile:


#61

Set as font-0 ?

EDIT: yup! That did it. Huh - wonder what I did to fubar this from a month ago. LOL
